Blankenship Player Comments

"We felt like we had a need with losing Clay Sears to graduation and really his backups, Michael Britton and Nathan Largen. We needed to have that physical, end-of-the-line tight end and Taylor gives us that physicality. He's a 6-4, almost 6-5 guy. He's a very physical blocker. He finishes blocks extremely well and has the maturity of two years of junior college to know that he can step in and help us right away."
